Thousands of students across the UK are taking to their bedrooms set to spend hours revising for GCSEs, A-levels and Degrees.
New research shows that the right kind of learning environment can be just as essential to exam success as a solid revision timetable and hours of swotting.
Choose green and blue in the bedroom
There’s evidence that gentle shades of green and blue help concentration, memory and emotional tranquillity. Strong blues help to stimulate clear thought and light soft blues calm the mind. Green is the colour of balance and harmony and can, therefore, be helpful in times of stress.
Light & Air
Clever blinds like these from www.duette.co.uk mean you can open windows to let fresh air in but still deliver shade for computer screens, and prevent too much heat avoiding that stuffy, distracting atmosphere.
Sunlight lifts the mood and improves energy levels, helping you to feel more focused and motivated.
And when it’s time for bed, the blackout option will help to deliver a good night’s sleep, refreshed and ready for a new day of revision
Keep it tidy
According to Feng Shui experts clutter creates a low, stagnant and confusing environment that constantly drains energy. Amanda Watson from fitted bedroom furniture firm Betta Living says: “Physical clutter overloads the senses and increases stress – give kids the ‘mind space’ to take in essential information needed for cramming!”
Sleep your way to success
After a day studying, the one thing that will help the brain fully recover is having a good night’s sleep. Teens need at least eight and a half hours of uninterrupted sleep to leave bodies and minds rejuvenated.
A quality pillow and duvet can make a huge impact on sleep quality. Our Smartfil® bedding products use innovative micro-fibre blends specially created to help induce a great night’s sleep; it’s clever technology for clever minds!
